Microsoft A lot of news on Bill Gates's stepping back. Mary Jo Foley wonders if Microsoft will still be the same after Gates has left, while also compiling a list of his 10 biggest Microsoft flops. Elsewhere, Bill Gates's successor, Craig Mundie, talks to eWeek. In addition, Cnet features an interview with both Mundie as well as Ray Ozzie: "Bill Gates leaves some pretty big shoes to fill. Think of Ray Ozzie as the left shoe and Craig Mundie as the right one."

Holy shit. Am I the only one to notice the irony of this idiot?

Mary Jo Foley, one of the best known investigative journalists covering the Redmond software juggernaut, is editor of Ziff Davis' Microsoft Watch newsletter and web site. Foley has covered the tech industry for 19 years for a variety of publications, including ZDNet News, eWeek and Baseline. She has kept close tabs on Microsoft strategy, products and technologies for the past 10 years. In the late 1990s, she penned the award-winning "At The Evil Empire" column for ZDNet.

Blah, blah, blah.....She has kept close tabs on Microsoft strategy, products and technologies for the past 10 years. In the late 1990s, she penned the award-winning "At The Evil Empire" column for ZDNet.

Quoting back some meaningless, supposed, experience isn't going to make you a 'somebody'. All this means what, exactly? She's a nobody journalist who's got into tech and IT and displays a stunning lack of knowledge when compared with us out there who actually use the software that Microsoft produces, are on the receiving end of it and who've dealt with Microsoft and how they operate rather than write articles about it. Now that's a proper definition of irony :-).

Varg Vikernes: Quotes back stuff that isn't his own and is unable to formulate his own replies.
